unscripted photos

FOR THE WILD & FREE

My favorite photos are the unprompted ones. The photos that capture those spontaneous, authentic, real-life moments that have emotional significance. Changing your baby's outfit. You child placing her ear next to your growing belly. These unscripted bits are the moments you'll want to remember.

PARTY TONIGHT

at my crib

From babies throwing midnight parties to super hero preschoolers, babies and young kids are my jam. I apologize in advance for saying, "Oh my goodness" a gazillion times during your session. And my voice might take on a soprano squeakiness, but trust me, I'm fine. Just excited!

REMEMBER

the joy

This is a picture of my daughter when she was nine months old. We'd just moved into a new house. I had a two-year-old tugging on my arm around the clock. It's all kind of a blur, but I do remember pumping in the car on the way to our closing appointment. Needless to say, it was...a lot. But this photo helps me remember the joy I experienced in the middle of a difficult season. In fact, if it weren't for this photo, I can't say I'd remember how my little girl looked in that dress or the awe in her eyes as she crawled up our new set of stairs for the very first time.

 

Adding a newborn to the family is also a lot. Your hormones are raging. You're crazy tired. It's hard to take it all in. My hope for our time together is that you'll slow down for a minute. Enjoy. Breathe. And let me help you remember.

PROFESSIONAL, TIMELY, & VERY RELAXED

"Kara was professional, timely, and very relaxed which helped this new mom chill out a bit. She reassured us and didn’t rush us while we went about caring for our daughter like we would any other day. The final photos were incredible. You wouldn’t even know that baby had spit up on us several times, would not let her pacifier go, and refused to sleep for two hours. She found the moments in between and captured them beautifully." - Steph K.
